Shredded Chicken in the Bean Pot

Time for another bean pot recipe! This is absolutely the simplest recipe I have made in a long time. Not even very creative. But it was deliciously yummy (so yummy I needed a way to say it twice!), it is completely economical, super fast to make, and healthy. Anyone who knows me knows … these are the ingredients necessary for a perfect meal at our house.


1-1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed

3/4 cup Walden Farms Honey BBQ sauce

2 tsp minced garlic


Place cubed chicken in bean pot. Mix BBQ sauce and garlic together, then pour over chicken. Place bean pot in microwave and cook on high for 5 minutes. Check to see if chicken is done and how tender it is. I put mine back in for about 4-5 minutes on low power, and then the chicken was tender enough to easily shred with a couple of forks.

If you are looking for a completely lean and green recipe, this could be served over salad. Or, you could cut back on your portion of meat a bit and put them on a Revolution Roll. If you go that route, you will want to add your veggies in on the side. Since we are in Transition and/or Maintenance at our house, we did them as a wrap on some Flat-Out bread, with a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese for the spread. Yummy, yummy, yummy!

But, as listed directly above, here is the Nutritional Breakdown:

Makes 3 servings. Each serving consists of:

1 leaner portion

2 condiments

  1. Hey Molly! I have a bean pot but have never used it! What is the significance or advantage of microwaving using the bean pot versus microwavable glassware? I’m ready to break mine in after visiting your blog:)

    • I believe your cooking time will be a bit faster, but having never really used microwavable glassware, I am definitely not an expert. Maybe we can get Tonya Giesbers to chime in on this one & give her expert wisdom! 🙂
